A wild place, almost 70 miles out to sea, home of turtles and birds (80,000 nesting sooty terns while we were there), and a homebody crocodile. It is beyond beautiful, otherworldly, liminal. It is somehow deeply outside time. Our national parks our some of our...More

It is unusual because it is one of our National Parks without cars! Before taking this trip I had enjoyed reading Nevada Barr's book, Flashback. While exploring the fort I was imaging the number of people who would have spent time here in the 1800s...More

Spouse and I took the Yankee Freedom Ferry to the Park. All was great except for the weather. Wind was high and seas rough and many travelling keep busy using the “barf bags” provided we did not – we never felt the need. But when...More

We know this national park is somewhat difficult to get to, but it is certainly worth the effort. We took Key West Seaplane out to the island for a half day tour. They were great. The half day was enjoyable but we were really rushed...More

Very interesting historical site in a majestic setting. We flew on the seaplane, which I recommend, as you get to observe the wildlife from a bird's eye view. If you do not appreciate history, the trip is not for you.

If you don't visit this park you are missing one of the great National Parks, especially if you are a diver or bird watcher. Fish, marine mammals and birds like you will never see in the lower 48. Like nothing else. Period. If you are...More

Took the ferry, clean and comfortable, got a cold breakfast and a nice cold lunch and beverages. Lots of history, good crew. Check the weather, they go regardless.

The boat ride out was awesome. You can see for miles in every direction and only see ocean, birds, and maybe other boats. It's a long ride out, but the time passes pretty quickly. Once there, you can do a quick .6M walk around the...More
